Flexible Online Instruction Using Modular Learning Design Workshop
A two-part workshop, each session lasting 90 minutes on Wednesdays, April 28 and May 5, 2021, 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific

In this two-part workshop series, library instruction expert Amanda Nichols Hess introduces the concept of modular learning, an approach to developing intentional, strategic online learning objects, and engages participants in applying these concepts in their own work. A modular learning approach is one where we intentionally build documentation and structure into our work so that content is ready to be updated or remixed to meet different learning needs in the near, mid-, or long-term.

In the first session, Nichols Hess and participants  will address how modular design fits into information literacy and instructional design, and they will work together to identify what partnerships, stakeholder relationships, and existing content they can leverage in a modular design process. In the second session, Nichols Hess and the participants will identify how they can incorporate evaluation, assessment, accessibility, and usability into their projects, and how they can scale, transform, and plan for the future of their resources. The active learning opportunities in both sessions will help participants apply the ideas in relevant, real-world contexts and connect with each other as they explore modular online learning design approaches.

After participating in this event, participants will be able to: 

  • Describe the key features of a modular design approach for online learning resources.
  • Compare and contrast modular design strategies for online learning with their current instructional design practices.
  • Identify at least one modular strategy they can apply to an existing online learning project, or for initiating a new online learning project, in their own library environments.
